"Ian Judge’s production is a thrilling revelation, elevating this rarity to something far more impressive than the music alone sometimes seems to deserve." - Yorkshire Evening Post

 

"If you want an evening which constantly sends tingles down the spine and makes you grip your seat, hurry along to Ian Judge’s virile production." - Daily Telegraph

 

"Where I thought Ian Judge’s production scored over the Royal Opera’s was in its unrelieved sense of flow, with one scene almost tumbling over the next in anxiety to maintain momentum." - Sunday Telegraph

 

"Judge always puts on a good show, and this ATTILA is no exception; it does however give off a whiff of camp." - Financial Times

 

"If this is camp, it’s the butchest camp I’ve ever seen!" - Opera Magazine
